'I've Lost You' is not listed in Sessions III as having backup vocals overdubbed on June 22 but the master contain backup vocals as well as Brass and Strings overdubs. The book Day By Day by Ernst Jørgensen and Peter Guralnick, as well as RCA's own single listing notice lists July 14 as the date when the single 'I've Lost You' / 'The Next Step Is Love' was shipped to suppliers, so this song must have had backup vocals overdubbed before then!

'How The Web Was Woven', 'Stranger In The Crowd' and 'It Ain't No Big Thing (But It's Growing)' are not listed in Sessions III as having backup vocals overdubbed on June 22 or September 21, but the masters contain female backup vocals as well as brass and strings overdubs. June 22 would be a likely date for backup vocal overdubs as The Jordanaires were present on September 21 but are not present on the final overdubbed masters.
